My experience in the MCAA program has been nothing short of amazing
“My experience in the MCAA program has been nothing short of amazing. I have learned so much this past year and it sounds cliché but I am a better, much more reflective coach. My teams have had some tremendous success through this process and I owe a big part to the MCAA program.”

Since graduating I have become an Assistant Athletic Director
“In 2011 I embarked on a journey with Concordia University, which has become one of the pivotal points of my life. Since graduating I have become an Assistant Athletic Director. The knowledge I have gained from this program I will carry with me always. The professors are invaluable; the class work is prevalent to real-life situations. I could not have picked a better university. I was able to work full time, coach, and continue my education. Thank you for the knowledge, the lessons, the experience, and knowing I will always have a home in Concordia University. “

It was so profound that we should be teaching our athletes about life, not just about sport
"This class has opened my eyes to many things over the past few weeks, but what has hit home the most is reading the book Season of Life. The day I read this book I could not put it down and fell asleep with the book on my chest. By mid morning the next day, I had finished the book. That night at dinner, I enthusiastically began to tell the story to my husband, the defensive coordinator of our high school football team. He began reading it the next day. We began having conversations at dinner that week about the book and how it was so profound that we should be teaching our athletes about life, not just about sport."
